  1. New pathetic one. I'm still getting it though.
  2. MK9 is damn close to the top of my current 2011 goty list, yet I haven't downloaded a single DLC character. Freddy will be mine Day One.
  3. Hey everyone, look! Someone just called Microsoft "M$"! OMG! ROTFLOLOL!
  4. I think the biggest enemy to early Wii U success will be E3 2012. If MS or Sony start talking about next-gen machines, many gamers might take a pass on Wii U altogether. It's looking more and more likely that MS will reveal Xbox 3 at E3 2012 and then launch that same fall, just like they did with Xbox and 360. If this happens, Nintendo is in trouble. People already have a sense that Wii U will be roughly on par (or slightly above) PS3 power-wise, locking it into current-gen performance levels. If Xbox 3 is revealed months before Wii U even launches (summer to holiday 2012 is Nintendo's latest word) AND shown to be a true generational leap, why would anyone pick up a Wii U? Mario and Zelda, are the obvious draws, but people learned with the Wii this generation that 3rd party support will not be there when the hardware is not port-friendly...and it's looking more and more likely that this will be the case yet again between Xbox 3, PS4 and Wii U. Seems like a harder sell this time around. People are wizened to the pitfalls of releasing "next-gen" hardware that's in reality only "current-gen" with a new coat of paint. Should be interesting to see how it plays out, that's for sure.
  5. Yeah, it's like you can smell the blood in the water.
  6. What I like about iOS games is that there's a variety of both simple and complex titles as mentioned above. As the market continues to mature this comes into sharper relief. I also have a Vita pre-ordered at Amazon.com, but I'm not so sure any more if I'm going to follow through with it. iPhone gaming has matured dramatically over the past 12 months to the point where I'm just not feeling like I need a dedicated gaming device on the go when I have a single convergence device that does everything, including gaming. Of course I won't be able to play Uncharted Vita-level games on iPhone, but honestly, I don't feel like I have to. I've got a console at home for that. When I'm on the go simple games like Cut the Rope or complex RPGs like Dungeon Hunter 2 get the job done just fine. It's kind of like XBLA/PSN. On the whole these titles are simpler, lighter experiences than $60 disc-based games. But that doesn't make downloadable games on 360/PS3 any less quality or worth a gamer's time. I'm not sure of the future of dedicated gaming portables, but as someone who has been actively using them for close to 35 years (starting with Mattel's Football in '77), I'm not seeing a need for them much anymore with the rise of mobile gaming. I don't think that Nintendo or Sony are DOA with their handhelds, but I do think they are going to lose a HUGE chunk of market and mindshare to mobile devices, both smart-phones and tablets, in the coming years. I can guarantee you that it will not be the same as it's been over the past few handheld console cycles.
  7. My god that expains so much about you. You're just a kid yourself.
  8. Forza 3 is stupid with content. Just start a career with the defaults you're comfortable with. Over the course of 20 or so races, you'll hone your skills and get a better idea of what your limits are. Just let it evolve organically. Play with the guide line on until you learn not to need it any more, etc. Don't play punitively by cutting off all the aids from the start. Simply wean yourself off of of them as your skill grows.
  9. Both games are fantastic. Can't go wrong either way.
  10. Well, I'm happy for Operation Rainfall and what they represent, but that's the last time I believe a single word they say. Credibility blown.
  11. Too many games coming out late-Q3 into Q4. It makes me scared for the quality titles that will fall between the cracks. Right now I'm locked in for: Batman: Arkham City Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Uncharted 3 Too bad the release schedule isn't more evenly distributed, as I can think of at least 6 other titles that I would buy Day One.
  12. Well this sucks. I already purchased Bastion on Marketplace 2 days ago.
  13. I haven't purchased any of the DLC characters yet. I'll be getting Freddy DAY ONE.
